SUN CONURE TRAINING and BEHAVIOR
More Sun Conure Information
Sun Conures are active,
sociable birds. In the wild they live in large flocks and therefore
enjoy the company of other birds. Sun Conures love to play and are very
inquisitive. While they can be timid and reserved with strangers, they
love to be handled and cuddled by their families.
A Sun Conure needs a fairly large conure cage, one that is at least 20 X
20 X 36 and, in all cases, large enough to allow them to spread their
wings and one in which their tail will not drag on the bottom of the
cage. In addition, Sun Conures do much better if they are allowed out of
their cages to roam the house or at least one room each day.
Sun Conures love to climb and to swing and they are great chewers. Offer
them at least two swings in their cage along with a variety of toys such
as bells and plastic chains that they can swing on. Since they love to
chew, it’s a good idea to keep them supplied with a variety of wooden
parrot toys that they can chew up. Fresh twigs and untreated leather
toys can also be provided to give them something to chew on.
Sun Conures have often been used as watchdogs because of their tendency
to listen closely or investigate if they hear an unusual noise or sense
anything unusual. Their piercing shriek will alert the owner to
All Conures are noted for their loud screams, which can be quite
disturbing. If your new Sun Conure tends to scream too often and too
loudly, blowing in his face will soon teach him that this is not an
acceptable behavior. This technique is also effective for Conures that
want to bite.
Because Sun Conures are extremely intelligent and social birds, they are
easily trained, using a parrot training system.
